What do spark plugs do, and how often do you change your spark plugs? Our team will very often explain to Stamford drivers that it’s recommended to replace them every 30,000 miles, but this number can depend on the specific model you’re driving. For the exact number of miles between spark plug replacement, you should always check your owner’s manual. However, if you’re ready to get them replaced today, you can bring your vehicle to our service center near Greenwich. We’ll take care of the process in no time. 

What Do Spark Plugs Do?

Your spark plugs are one of the components of your ignition system that is vital to the entire thing working. These components deliver high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber as soon as you start the vehicle. If the spark plugs aren’t functioning properly, you’ll start to see issues with your vehicle’s performance, including: 

  • Slow or no start
  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor acceleration
  • High fuel consumption

Benefits of Spark Plug Replacements

In addition to avoiding issues like those listed above, there are other benefits that come from knowing how often you should change your spark plugs. Those benefits include: 

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it can help gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion and leave your vehicle’s system running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly. 
  • Less harmful emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can not only help increase your gas mileage but also improve your emissions.
